M/S of three women holding two babies each - twins perhaps? High angle of the babies sitting at their mothers' feet. High angle shot of all the babies sitting together in a group.

    "No home complete without one!" M/S of a crowd of mothers and babies. A proud father holds his baby up to the camera. Another mother shows off her pride and joy. Group of babies sitting on the ground. "Steps and "Stares". Children in swimwear stand on some concrete steps - one child on each step. C/U of one of the children who wears a very strange outfit - a kind of curtain around its shoulders and a pierrot ruffle!
